Where Has Giving Gone?

Where Has Giving Gone?

You are trying to comprehend why the giving levels in your church are down. You may know several possibilities, but you aren't certain.

There is a high correlation between attendance and giving, even if you have a strong online giving component. It is also worth noting that attendance frequency is down in many churches, if not most churches, as well. The family who attends three times a month is more likely to give more than the same family attending two times a month.
